My name is Hilkka Honkasalo. I live in Finland where I was born. I had a brain tumor resection done in 2000, leaving me with a right-sided hemiparesis and aphasia. I had to give up my 30-year career in the garment business. After the onset I found painting. I started with the aquarelle and acrylic painting, but have moved onto oil painting completely now.
